Celestial Body

Sunset, also called sundown in some American English dialects, is the time at which the Sun disappears below the horizon in the west. It should not be confused with dusk, which is the point at which darkness falls, some time after the beginning of twilight when the Sun itself sets.
The sunset is often more brightly coloured than the sunrise, with the shades of red and orange being more vibrant. The atmosphere responds in a number of ways to exposure to the Sun during daylight hours. In particular, there tends to be more dust in the lower atmosphere at the end of the day than at the beginning. During the day, the Sun heats the surface of the Earth, lowering the relative humidity and increasing wind speed and turbulence, which serves to lift dust into the air. However, differences between sunrise and sunset may in some cases depend more on the geographical particulars of the location from which they are viewed. For example, on a west-facing coastline, sunset occurs over water while sunrise occurs over land.

Great colouring! I use to spend at least two weeks on the Swedish west coast in the summer, and we have magnificent sunsets there. But I've hardly seen sunrises, since I'm never up so early.

My pleassure, and no, it doesn't happen often. This time of year, when It's dark when I rise it's usually overcast too, so I don't get to see any even if I should happen to get a free sight. But I seldom do anyway in the middle of the city with all the houses and stuff.
